Dental Implant Infection in Dubai & Abu Dhabi Royal Clinic

With the development of implant technology, more and more patients prefer this method of restoring lost teeth as the most reliable, aesthetic, and comfortable. Set and forget! This is what happens in most cases unless the most formidable complication violates the plans of the doctor and his patient, due to which the implant can be lost. Dental Implant Infection in Dubai, Abu Dhabi & Sharjah will help deal with all kinds of complications.


At the initial implantation stage, a pin is inserted into the spine – a metal rod that plays the root part for an artificial tooth. For it to hold correctly, the bone must attach to it, and osseointegration must occur.

If something goes wrong, the bone will not grow into the groove of the implant, and inflammation will start to occur in the surrounding joints. The same reaction occurs when any foreign body enters the bone.


If there is some swelling, bleeding, and soreness of the gums after the installation of implants, this is not considered a pathology. Since it is a natural reaction of the body to soft tissue injury, these symptoms ideally go away on their own within 3-5 days after surgery.

When pain and swelling persist for a more extended period and tend to increase, this indicates the onset of inflammation of the gums – peri-implantitis. His symptoms look like this:

  • Acute pain, swelling, redness of the gums that persist do not decrease or increase for 3-4 days after implantation
  • Bleeding or bleeding from the gums for more than 5-7 days after surgery
  • When pressing on the implant, soreness indicates a violation of osseointegration
  • Mobility of the dental structure
  • Enlargement and soreness of the submandibular lymph nodes
  • Purulent discharge from the gums, the formation of a fistulous tract
  • Bad breath, when examining the design, the doctor discovers the source of the smell under the plug or abutment
  • Increased body temperature, fatigue, and drowsiness a day after surgery.

Quick Tip! Inflammation of the gums after dental implantation can begin several months or even years after the operation.

Treatment Option:

  • Then professional hygiene of the implant and adjacent areas is carried out the removal of soft dental deposits and tartar from the dental crown and the subgingival space using ultrasound.
  • Next, surgical sanitation of the area of ​​​​inflammation is carried out, and abscesses are opened. Periodontal pockets are cleaned in the same way as in periodontal diseases, with the help of special curettes or the Vector device. The problematic implant shouldn’t be loaded.
  • At the same time, bone grafting can be performed using the method of guided bone regeneration using bone chips and regenerating membranes.
